fp 628

FP628

Nitrogen/Protein in Organic Samples

By incorporating state-of-the-art hardware and software technology with key improvements in overall instrument performance and reliability, the FP628 allows you to achieve rapid analysis times of 3.5 minutes for nitrogen/protein results in organic matrices such as foods, forages, fertilizers, and milled products regardless of sample mass.

Part of our popular 628 series, this instrument is also available in carbon/nitrogen and carbon/hydrogen/nitrogen configurations. An optional sulfur add-on module provides independent sulfur determination on macro samples (350 mg).


 

Features

Maximize Throughput While Keeping Cost-Per-Analysis Low

  • Rapid analysis times of 3.5 minutes with extended reagent lifetimes including a 2000 sample copper reduction reagent lifetime ensure a low cost-per-analysis and increased instrument uptime for maximum throughput regardless of sample matrix or mass
  • Unique combustion gas handling and aliquot dosing system eliminating the need for chromatographic separation, trap and purge techniques, and other costly whole gas analyses
  • Stainless-steel pre-chiller block and thermoelectric cooler eliminates the use of anhydrone or other chemical reagents for removal of moisture in the furnace combustion gases
  • Simple, gravity-fed autoloader allows for unattended analysis with optional capacity for up to 120 samples, while increasing long-term reliability of loader

Additional Features and Benefits

Highlights

Pure Oxygen Combustion System

  • Dual-stage furnace system operates at temperatures up to 1050°C using only pure oxygen to ensure the complete combustion of all organic samples, without requiring additional metal oxidizing reagents or other carrier gases
  • Quartz lance directs oxygen flow directly onto the sample, accelerating the combustion process and providing superior recovery
  • Large, porous crucible aids combustion process of macro samples and extends maintenance intervals to several hundred samples
